[movies]DM-2 Chilling
How do you chill down 1.4 million pounds of solid rocket fuel in the hot Utah desert? Lots of air conditioning! Learn how ATK chilled down DM-2, the second Ares first stage development motor in advance of the August 31 static test. DM-2 is a "cold motor" test with the mean motor temperature at 40 degrees for the two-minute test.

[movies]Ares I-X Forward Skirt Extension Separation Test
This is high-speed camera footage of a separation test conducted for the Ares I-X rocket. The test simulated the separation event that will take place following the first stage of flight. The test needed to show that the linear-shaped charge used to separate the forward skirt extension severed cleanly.More info is available at: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/constellation/ares/flighttests/aresIx/index.html

[movies]What Caused the Ares I-X Parachute to Fail?
Pull cord, deploy chute. Sounds simple, right? For the Ares I-X team the trick was in that "pull cord" step. After a thorough root cause analysis, NASA has pinpointed the likely culprit behind the Ares I-X parachute system anomaly -- an errant cord yank that caused one reefing line pyro charge to fire prematurely while still in the parachute pack. During the Ares I-X suborbital flight, the packed parachutes shook and shimmied inside the vehicle...

[movies]Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator Test
NASA recently performed a trial run on a rocket sled test fixture, powered by rockets, to replicate the forces a supersonic spacecraft would experience prior to landing. The sled tests will allow the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator Project, or LDSD, to test inflatable and parachute decelerators to slow spacecraft prior to landing and allow NASA to increase landed payload masses, improve landing accuracy and increase the altitude of safe landing-sites...

[movies]Successful Small-Scale Rocket Motor Test
Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. successfully tested a sub-scale solid rocket motor on May 27. Testing a sub-scale version of a rocket motor is a cost-effective way to evaluate new materials, technologies or processes, and rapidly assess performance. Data from the 21-second test will be evaluated to better understand the performance of a new nozzle configuration, processes and materials.

[movies]J-2X: From Concept to Hot Fire
The author/director of this creative piece is Paul Gradl who works on the J-2X development effort. A superb engineer with a technical background in combustion devices design and analysis, he came up with the notion of stringing together the J-2X development process starting with conceptual design, then detailed design and analysis, through fabrication and assembly, and finally into full-scale hot-fire testing...

[movies]Small Solid Rocket Motor Test
It was three-two-one to brilliant fire as NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center tested a small solid rocket motor designed to mimic NASA's Space Launch System booster. The Mar. 14 test provides a quick, affordable and effective way to evaluate a new nozzle insulation material for the SLS solid rocket booster. (NASA/MSFC)

[movies]J-2X Engine Test, May 16, 2012
The shake, rattle and roar lasted just seven seconds, but the short J-2X test conducted May 16 at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center moved the space agency closer to a return to deep space. NASA operators tested the next-generation J-2X engine on the A-2 Test Stand at Stennis to collect early data on performance of the engine and test stand with the new nozzle extension and clamshell configuration...

[movies]J-2X Rocket Engine, 40-Second Test
NASA conducted a 40-second test of the J-2X rocket engine Sept. 28, the most recent in a series of tests of the next-generation engine selected as part of the Space Launch System architecture that will once again carry humans into deep space. It was a test at the 99 percent power level to gain a better understanding of start and shutdown systems as well as modifications that had been made from previous test firing results.

[movies]J-2X Engine Continues to Set Standards
Testing of the next-generation J-2X rocket engine continues to set standards. Last fall, the engine attained 100 percent power in just its fourth test and became the fastest U.S. rocket engine to achieve a full-flight duration test, hitting that 500-second mark in its eighth test. On, May 25, NASA recorded another first during a 40-second test of the engine on the A-2 Test Stand at John C. Stennis Space Center...
